    If Tuvix had just swished his arms, he could have tapped the other two's minds right out of their brain pans.

    Vulcans believe in suicide, but albeit so petty, this would only be self defence.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Tuvix = Brundlefly.

    Nonsense. Tuvok 2.0 and Neelix 2.0 retaining copies of Tuvix's memories is no more an indication of continuity of consciousness than Lal retaining copies of Data's memories means her consciousness is continuous with his.

    By what right do you decide which person is more deserving of life?

    Of course not. She should have made the choice to accept that Tuvok and Neelix were dead, mourn their loss, and move on. You know -- what you're supposed to do when people die.

    When Harry's girlfriend died, didn't he just start having sex with her corpse?

    Yes... I knew what you meant. :lol:
    I've seen every VOY episode. ;p

    I thought it was weird then...and its still weird now. lol

    To be fair, her corpse was revived and turned into an alien.

    Which is why Kes didn't want to sleep with Tuvix.

    What would Picard have done?

    Given a long speech about how noble it would be to sacrifice yourself to save two others that Tuvix would have no choice but to fall on his sword.

    That sounds much more elegant.

    It sounds much more Trek.

    Which is why VOY is such a delight.

    Jean-Luc's go to move surely has to be the Picard Manoeuvre?

    He throws Tuvix at a wall at warp 9 so that in the 4 seconds that it appears that Tuvok is being thrown at the wall and Neelix is already bouncing off it, Picard can ask their opinion on the matter before the optical illusion integrates.

    Sisko would have disintegrated Tuvix to make the entire question moot. :p

    Archer would knocked Tuvix on his ass.

    I think it's the other way around. Archer really seemed to like getting beat up. :lol:

    The Enterprise crew were only truly interesting when they took their clothes off.
